About Us

Grasshopper began operations in 2019 and is a client-first digital bank serving small businesses, startups, and the investors supporting them across the innovation economy. Our digital solutions cover small business, venture-backed companies, fintech-focused Banking-as-a-Service (BaaS) and commercial API banking platforms, SBA lending, commercial real estate lending, and yacht financing. Privately owned and headquartered in New York City, the bank is a Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation member and is an Equal Housing/Equal Opportunity Lender.
